Dig into the scriptures using a NEW tool: DOODLING

That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said.
John 20:19 (NLT)

words→pictures→doodle→for some of us: art

If you’re looking for a new way to spend time in the scriptures listening for what God has to say to you today, you might try doodling.

I am not an accomplished artist, but I am a life-long doodler. Here’s the method I use. I invite you to adapt it to fit your own style and skillset.

  • Read the verses and pray about them.
  • Ask yourself:
    • Is there a word or phrase the jumps out at me?
    • What visual comes to mind? (It may be as simple as colors, an abstract, a word, or a stick figure…)
    • Do the verses remind me of something or someone in my life?
    • If I was going to explain this concept to a 6-year-old, what picture would aid in understanding?
  • Draw a picture or write the words and let the Holy Spirit guide your thoughts.
